    In the mid-17th century, a lay brotherhood of penitents had this chapel built on the Place de l'Eglise, shaded by cypress trees, on the edge of the cliff overlooking the Valley of La Fontaine. Its underground cellars contained the bodies of members of the Brotherhood. It was unearthed from the ruins in 1937 by the 'Maintenance des Confréries of Langue d'Oc'. It was then dedicated to Saint Estelle, who looks after the memory of the old Penitents of Les Baux and is patron saint of the Félibrige Association.

    The Le Castellet site, a small rocky plateau, was occupied by an oppidum in the 4th century BC. It was abandoned two centuries later, but redeveloped in the 12th century. Within the château walls was a high tower, which no longer exists, as well as a church dedicated to Saint Mary. Only the apse remains standing: it is semi-domed and supported by eight ribs resting on corbels. These remains are currently located on the land of a private Mas and are therefore inaccessible to the public.

    On the ancient site of Ernaginum, at the crossroads of the Via Agrippa and the Via Domitia, which later became a mediaeval stronghold, the 12th century Saint Gabriel Chapel and the former 13th century Château still testify to the site's prestigious past. A masterpiece of southern Romanesque architecture, the interior of the chapel offers visitors a wealth of sculptures.

    Until the early 14th century, the synagogue of the local Jewish community stood on this site. Pope John XXII had the synagogue destroyed after driving out the Jewish community and in its place he had a chapel built and dedicated to Notre-Dame-d’Enville; this was distinct from Saint Bauldile Church, which was then 'extra muros'. It was inaugurated in 1320 and the marriage contract between Hugues de Sade and Laura de Noves was signed there on 16 January 1325.

    The bottle procession takes place in Saint Marcellin Chapel on 1 June every year. On this day, all male residents of Boulbon go to the Chapel carrying a bottle of wine. After the Provençal service, the bottles are blessed. Each participant can then have a sip of wine, while the village police officer distributes glasses to the clergy and the authorities. The wine blessed in the name of the Saint is believed to have beneficial effects against fevers and stomach aches.

    This chapel is located on private property by the side of the Chemin de Saint-Véran. The quality and perfect stone-setting of this building, most of which is in ruins, make it one of the most characteristic in Romanesque Provence. It had a single nave, with a barrel vault resting on transverse arches and built around a semi-domed apse; on each side of the entrance to the apse were rubble stones decorated with foliage with plant and geometrical designs. There was a side chapel to the south.

    This is a Romanesque chapel originally dedicated to Saint Peter. In the 12th century, it became Notre Dame de l'Assomption and at the same time was given to the Arles Chapter. The site of Lansac, a tiny hamlet south of Tarascon, has been inhabited since Roman times, when the residents fled Ernaginum (now Saint Gabriel), where they had originally settled but which was pillaged by the Visigoths.
